Like the best photojournalism, the Corcoran Gallery of Art exhibition “War/Photography: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath,” which closes at the end of the month, is part sociology and part art. As the show winds down, the museum is presenting a related public program that underscores the complexity of our emotional engagement with armed conflict, which can lurch from horror to fascination.
On Wednesday at 6 p.m., Corcoran students, alumni and faculty, along with local journalists, activists and writers, will present a free evening of poetry and spoken--word performance in response to the themes of the show.
